Review: Skin in the Game

SitG-500px“Skin in the Game” by Jackie Barbosa (contemporary, Entangled, May 2013, $2.99, 250pp)


Angela Peterson was always the quiet, shy kid growing up in Harper Falls, crushing on the high school quarterback and honing her football strategy skills. Now grown up and coaching the high school team, she’s shocked when that same sexy quarterback returns to Harper Falls asks her back to his hotel room. And then tries to steal her job.


Injured NFL quarterback Cade Reynolds is in Harper Falls to take over as interim head coach, and he never thought the tall, blond bombshell he propositioned would offer up any resistance. Not to a repeat of the amazingly wild night they shared and certainly not to his coaching position.

“Tempted into Danger” by Melissa Cutler (review copy)
Review to come. This is a romantic suspense story where the hero rescues the heroine and they trek through the jungle.


“Needing Nita” by Norah Wilson (ebook)
This is an erotic novella about an attorney who gives into her desire for a sexy cop only after she thinks she might have a brain tumor. I enjoyed this one.


“Her Master’s Kiss” by Vivien Sparxx (ebook)
This one isn’t my thing. It is the story of a woman who wants to be trained to be a slave – and she and her master find much more. The master/slave relationship portrayed here is rather harsh and missing the emotional connection that I need to believe in the relationship.

“Indulging the Professor” by Ella Jade (ebook)
This is a good, short story about a professor and his student who plan a getaway to begin their relationship after she graduates. This was a fun and sexy story.


“Fire Inside” by Kristen Ashley (ebook, review copy, NetGalley)
Review to come, but Lanie and Hop’s story is now one of my favorite Kristen Ashley books!


“A Virgin for Two Brothers” by Jenika Snow (ebook)
This is a futuristic book featuring a heroine who puts herself into a virgin auction in order to get money to help her family. She is purchased by two men. I enjoyed this one, but felt it was too short for the price. I much prefer longer stories.

“A Hot Mess” by Christy Gissendaner (ebook)
I enjoyed this story about a woman who is dumped by her fiancé in Vegas. She calls her old friend Dylan to come rescue her – and their relationship takes a new turn.


“The Submissive” by Tara Sue Me (review copy)
I’m pondering this one. I don’t think it was my favorite story. I had a hard time warming up to the hero. I felt he was rather removed and somewhat unfeeling. However, I was caught up in the story enough that I think I will have to read the next two stories in the trilogy.


“His Risk to Take” by Tessa Bailey (ebook, review copy, NetGalley)
A review of this title, out on May 13, will be coming. However, Tessa Bailey is the most recent author added to my “Must Buy” list. She has a knack for writing heroes who are very dirty talkers.

Review: Ours to Love

Ours to Love“Ours to Love” by Shayla Black (erotic, Berkley, May 2013, $16.00, 400pp)


Series: Wicked Lovers


Between two brothers…

Xander Santiago spent years living it up as a billionaire playboy. Never given a chance to lead his family business in the boardroom, he became a master in the bedroom instead. His older brother, Javier, inherited the company and worked tirelessly to make it an empire. But while cutthroat corporate espionage took its toll on Javier, nothing was as devastating as the seemingly senseless murder of his wife. It propelled him into a year of punishing rage and guilt…until Xander came to his rescue.

TakeMeBreakMe“Take Me, Break Me” by Cari Silverwood (ebook)
This book is a tough one to read. It features a heroine who asks her current friend Klaus (and former lover) to fulfill her capture fantasy and keep her captive for a month. It begins as a fantasy that Jodie constructs and controls. However when she tells Klaus that he is too nice to make the fantasy work, things change. Klaus discovers a brutal and sadistic side. This book is a serious mindfuck – mostly for Klaus who has difficulty dealing with what he learns about himself. I think the story is very well written. It is also a story that I can’t quite get out of my head.


“Bound by Pleasure” by Morticia Knight (ebook)
Um, this one was not my thing. It is much more pornographic than romantic.

“Her Twin Wilde Cowboy Masters” by Chloe Lang (ebook)
Brothers sharing a woman is such an odd thing. I find it creepy, yet I can’t stop reading about it. I bought this one expecting it to be a crack read to help get me out of a reading slump, and boy did it live up to my expectations.


“Seven Night Stand” by Nicole Helm (ebook, review copy)     
Review to come.


“Forged in Steele” by Maya Banks (ebook, review copy)
This one isn’t out until the end of June.
